Warning!

First of all you need confidence that you can do it. Secondly, in my personal view nbme13 is difficult then other nbme.
Forget kaplans, lock those books in a locker now. Start revising FA while doing lots of Uworld questions. Key is remembering the stuff that u hv already done. Also analyse your previous tests and see what exactly went wrong is it concepts or recall or application of knowledge.
